Connoisseur Exclusive! Free Home Transfers within 30 miles of Rosyth Port!
Our team has planned this Scottish Bank Holiday weekend cruise to visit Norway when the landscapes are greener and the days are longer.
In just five days, you will see many remarkable natural landscapes. There’s even a chance to visit the Briksdal Glacier with a local geologist, making for a more insightful experience.
From Stavanger, you can visit the Swords in Rock Monument, which commemorates the battle during which Harald Hårfagre became the first King of Norway.
Enjoy the benefits of a smaller ship as Balmoral makes diversions to sail areas out of reach to larger ships, including past Hornelen – Europe’s highest sea cliff – and along Lysefjord, passing under the famous Pulpit Rock.

2 August Departing Rosyth Port, Scotland
4 August Olden, Norway
Located at the eastern end of the Nordfjord where it divides into three arms beneath the glaciers of the Jostedalsbreen, the charming village of Olden sits among green meadows, towering cliff faces, and sparkling glacial waters. In the centre of the village is the Old Church; and just a short journey away is the Briksdal Glacier, formed thousands of years ago, while still breath-taking, has retreated some 859m in the last century, a stark reminder of the effects of climate change.
5 August Stavanger, Norway
Behind the bustle of prosperous, cosmopolitan Stavanger lies 1,000 years of seafaring tradition. This vibrant Norwegian city oozes charm and was awarded the title of European Capital of Culture in 2008. The city’s wealth and thriving oil industry have prompted its tag as Norway’s oil capital, but Stavanger remains as charming as ever. The old town, Gamle Stavanger, has narrow winding streets and ancient wooden houses, gathered around a historic fresh fish and vegetable market. Beyond the town, The Swords in Rock monument commemorates the 9th-century battle where Harald Hårfagre became the first King of Norway.
